Live Event
of the Dealers,
for the Dealers

ASOTU Live at the NBC Sports Arena at Xfinity Live in Philly is a limited seating, one day in-person event that will provide real-time insights and energy from the most innovative dealers and industry partners you’ve only seen online.

Webinars and Zoom calls are cool and all...

When we found out that the NADA Show was cancelled, our founder, Paul J Daly just about threw his computer, but didn’t. Instead he made a post on LinkedIn and thousands responded.

What Past ASOTU Attendees Said

At a time of unprecedented uncertainty and turmoil in the auto industry, Paul Daly provided a vital platform for leaders of the industry to come together, provide critical updates, and share important information on everything from restarting vehicle production to operational changes at the dealership. The  ASOTU series helped tremendously in this regard, and I know we’re all looking forward to reconnecting.

Rhett Ricart
2020 NADA Chairman

The ASOTU was a first class content series with industry experts. Fun, informative, and interactive! I learned a lot and am grateful for the team at Congruent for putting it together.

Matt Lasher
Director of Marketing @ West Herr Auto Group

Such a great time participating in this years Automotive State of the Union event. Sharing on the importance of corporate culture and its ROI for businesses never gets old.

James Orsini
President The Sasha Group

I had no idea how much response I would get after being on the Automotive State of the Union event. Email, Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, and all social media areas had responses, both my personal and all Street Volkswagen accounts. All was positive and was so uplifting to my team.

John Luciano
GM/Managing Partner, Street Volkswagen

Paul - At such a critical time, you helped bring our cottage industry together to listen, learn and lead our industry though the most surreal events of our lifetime. As a result of your and others efforts - it is clear that the state of our union is strong. And I personally am grateful for your leadership.

Alex Vetter
Director, President and CEO,

 It was an honor and a treat to be a contributor at a live ASOTU event. Paul and his team truly care about the industry and walk the walk, and more importantly, the people who lead within it. The back of the house crew treated me like royalty and the production alone was worth it’s weight in gold! THANK YOU

Claude Silver
Chief Heart Officer, VaynerMedia

 The amount of relevant content that help me and my team guide our business through these unprecedented times has been priceless. So I just wanted to take this minute and say thank you to Paul and his team, but especially say thank you to those of you that took your time to lend your experience, strength and hope to me and to my team.

Why attend ASOTU Live Event?


Thursday, November 12th from 10am-3pm. Doors open at 9am.


NBC Sports Arena at Xfinity Live: 

Retail Automotive is a high energy, contact sport. So we thought this high energy arena was the perfect venue to Push Back. And since Paul grew up about a mile from the place, he’s twice as enthusiastic about it. South Philly...can’t you just hear the Rocky music playing?


Because of the short timing of the event, we will be announcing speakers and panels once confirmed. Rest assured that it will be a high value roster. Check out the speakers we’ve had at past events here. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this for dealers?

YES! ASOTU exists to be an organization that produces content and events with one goal, the strengthening of retail auto dealers. The solutions to the problems dealers are facing aren’t ideas, they are people. Smart, innovative people. Those are the type you’ll be meeting.


We specifically chose a venue and airport that would make it truly possible to “fly-in fly-out” if you so choose. The Philadelphia International Airport (PHI) has direct flights from most major markets. The NBC Sports Arena at Xfinity Life is only an 8 minute drive from PHI.

If you would like to stay overnight, we are working to secure group rates at several, conveniently located hotels and will update ticket holders as information becomes available.

Book your group rate for ASOTU Room Block!

Will this be livestreamed?

Although the event will be recorded, the event will NOT be livestreamed in its entirety. There will be a select few sessions which are available to watch, however there will be a number of closed sessions.

Can non-sponsoring industry partners buy a ticket?

There will only be a handful of tickets available to non-sponsoring industry partners. Space is extremely limited and we want to ensure that.


Just because we are having an in-person event, doesn’t mean we aren’t taking COVID 19 seriously. We are. Not only are we following all local and national requirement regarding best practices and building capacity, we are taking it a step further by staying well under the capacity percentage requirement of the venue. We will also be taking the traditional “check in” process to a new (more fun) level by sending out individual Check-In Swag boxes to every ticket holder.

Everyone has a different level of comfort with the current risks of catching COVID 19. We want everyone to be as comfortable as possible. Remember though, any activity with anyone puts you at greater risk and this is, obviously, a voluntary event. All ticket holders will be required to sign a waiver stating that you assume all responsibility for any potential exposure by attending the event.


Free parking will also be available in the Xfinity Live! Parking Lot that is off of 11th St (right next to Xfinity Live!) and in the Wells Fargo Center's parking lot from the main entrance on Broad Street.
